Jenelle held my hand!

Not much new to report. I forgot to mention that when we saw Dr. Shields last week, Jenelle was up to 27 pounds, 6 ounces! Great news!

Today, Jenelle seems to be getting sick as she seems congested and stuffed up. As she was falling asleep tonight, I decided to crawl into bed with Jenelle and stroke her hair. She seemed to enjoy it as she was quiet, but awake. All of a sudden, I held my hand in front of her face and said, "Hold my hand Jenelle!", and you know what?... She grabbed it! Well OK, she didn't really grab it, but she made a noticeable effort to put her hand into mine. She did it not once, but 5 or 6 times! I even called Brett into to watch - we're so proud!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It's Charlotte, Matthew's Ganny. I had always thought that matthew's myoclonic jerks resembled infantile spasms but our neuro told us they were myoclonic jerks. He doesn't have them anymore but I was wondering if you could take a look at the video on his webpage and tell me what you think. He has tonic siezures now before bedtime or nap time only when he's falling asleep. I just want to make sure I am getting right information on this video.

What do you mean not much new to report??? The hand holding is a great brag. It's moments like that that make your heart burst and rejuventate you into knowing you can keep on going.
